When it is all said and done, he will have been in at least 3 different trial courts, first state, then federal, then civil.

Unless he can get a backer to loan him more cash, I doubt by then he will have any cash left to sue anybody.

And why would he sue the city? The city cut him a huge break by letting him go scot free the first time. It is the State of Florida that has indicted him, not the city.

The city kissed his wahzoo all they could already.

Why not? Z would then be classified as a latino and it would be even worse.
While it should be true that any violent crime committed should not be judged by the race of the perpetrator or the victim, that's not how our society works.

Black-on-white and Hispanic-on-white crime has been so common as to be normalized and judged not newsworthy. Had Trayvon been a white kid, I guarantee that Sharpton, Jackson et al would not have said a word and the media would not have hyped this up they way it has.

That said, if Zimmerman is indeed guilty of a crime - that is, he unreasonably and unjustly took Martin's life - then he should pay for that crime. Based on the evidence we have been told about thus far, it corroborates Zimmerman's version of the story. If more comes out, fine. But if this guy is being railroaded then the jackasses doing it should pay for that crime.

There's two travesties ongoing, side by side, here, IMHO.

The Secret Service is providing the president, ON OUR DIME,

a service much like Zimmerman was trying to voluntarily provide his

neighborhood, because he is simply a community-minded citizen.

If the SS had shot Trayvon, nobody would have questioned it in the least.

The agents involved would have probably been cited for bravery, and given

the thanks of a grateful nation, for merely doing their job, for which they

are well paid, complete with top-end federal job benefits. But

Zimmerman, gave freely of his time, and risked his life for his community,

to earn the situation he's in now.

Of course there's the usual travesty of the media circus, where he's

been roped, and pulled through the mud, so Channel 7 can sell

air fresheners and hard-on pills...
